How to troubleshoot your downloads

What is the difference between a downloadable template and a Resume Builder template?

Hloom started with one goal in mind, to create beautiful and simple resume templates for Microsoft Office. Our downloadable templates were the first iteration of our dream –– free templates that could be downloaded, adapted and customized on your personal computer. Eventually, our resume templates became our most popular downloads and our readers started asking for writing advice and job-specific samples.

So we got to work! We got ourselves certified as resume writers, started to research various industries and different jobs, and worked with UX designers to create a simple online tool that could tackle the resume-writing process for you with templates, writing advice, and pre-written resume sections based on your job-seeking needs.

Our paid subscription model supports continually researching new hiring trends, updating our job-related content as the job market evolves, and designing new templates within our Resume Builder. And we still offer our free downloadable templates as budget-friendly options for your DIY job-seeking needs.

Do I have to pay for the downloadable templates?

Our original downloadable templates are free. As our company grew and we launched our Resume Builder, we upgraded 28 templates to support the features of our builder. We can spot the difference between our free and builder templates by the hover-over options.

If you hover over a template you like and see “Download This Template,” you’re eyeing a free download. Click on the template to download to your personal computer and edit away.

If you hover over a template and spot a “Build This Template,” you’re eying a premium template with all of the resume-writing features of our builder. Click this option to unlock all of the features of our easy-to-use Resume Builder.

Why can’t I access a free downloadable template?

There could be an issue with your cache that is preventing you from downloading our templates. Follow these standard troubleshooting directions to access our free resume templates successfully:

1.

Double-check your recent download folders for the templates.

2.

Clear your browser’s cache.

3.

Reload the page.

4.

Reattempt the download and save under an easy-to-remember name.

Why can’t I edit a free downloadable template?

If you’re having trouble editing one of our downloadable templates, there could be a compatibility issue with your word processor and the downloaded file format. Please note, our free downloads were designed to edit and finalize on your personal computer and are not currently compatible with our Resume Builder.

Microsoft Word

1.

Double-check your downloaded document and confirm it’s in .doc or .docx format.

2.

If not, right-click on the doc, select “Save as,” and resave in .doc or .docx format.

3.

If the problem persists, try to re-download the template.

Google Docs

1.

Although all of our templates are compatible with Google Docs, this collection of documents is specifically formatted for the online drive.

2.

Try downloading and editing one of these Google Doc templates if you continue to have issues.

3.

If the problem persists, try to re-download the template.

Open Office

1.

Although our templates are designed with Microsoft Office in mind, we converted our popular templates to an Open Office template.

2.

Download one of these Open Office specific templates if you continue to have issues.

3.

If the problem persists, try to re-download the template.

Can I save a free downloadable template to my Hloom account?

Although you can upload an existing resume to your Hloom account, including one of our free downloadable templates, our Resume Builder currently doesn’t support more than the 28 templates we feature in the tool. However, our builder does auto-format all of your resume information into one of those featured builder templates to save you time while editing and finalizing your document.

Why can’t I find free templates in your builder?

We are incredibly proud of our builder and dedicated years to researching and developing the interface, job-related content, and resume tips. The subscription model allows us to research new hiring trends, update the job-related information, tailor templates to meet resume requirements, and continually improve your user experience.

Our exclusive templates help support these improvements, but we also want to offer free options for your DIY resume needs. The builder is free to try and we provide you with one free download in .txt file format. An active subscription unlocks the following downloadable features:

  • Customizable templates
  • Download files in .pdf and .docx formats
  • Unlimited online storage
  • Unlimited downloads

How to troubleshoot the Resume Builder

What’s included in the Hloom Full Access plan?

Upgrading your account to the Hloom Full Access account unlocks all of our premium resume templates, including the following job-seeking perks:

  • Create unlimited resumes and matching cover letters.
  • Online storage and access to all saved documents.
  • Quickly download and print resumes and cover letters in PDF, Microsoft Word and simple .txt formats.
  • Check your resume for grammar, spelling and other common mistakes instantly with Resume Check.

  • Get real-time salary information for jobs in your field and location.
  • Learn when and how to follow up on job applications and how to negotiate offers.

Why can’t I download a document for which I already paid?

If you can’t download an existing document, your browser’s cache may be an issue. Try these simple steps first:

1.

Refresh your page by clearing your cache and cookies or by deleting your browsing history.

2.

You may also do this by simultaneously pressing on Control + Shift + Delete.

3.

Attempt to download a simple .txt version of your document by selecting “Download,” and choosing the “plain text” option.

If none of these steps resolve the issue, please email us at customerservice@hloom.com. Include your account ID or associated email address and a summary of your issue.

Why can’t I print my document?

There could be a few reasons for a printing issue to pop up. Try the following steps to clear up the most common causes:

1.

Double-check your recent downloads to confirm that you saved your resume or cover letter in the file format of your choosing (.pdf, .docx, .rtf, or .txt.).

2.

Double-check that your printer is on and connected to your computer or internet connection.

3.

If you continue to have issues, try restarting your printer.

4.

If all else fails, try restarting your computer.

If you continue to have trouble printing your document after following these steps, please email us at customerservice@hloom.com. Include your account ID or associated email address and a summary of your issue.

I’m having issues with spacing/margins/font size. Whenever I print my resume, it prints on multiple pages, or the spaces are too large between work experiences. How do I fix this?

There could be an issue with your printer settings that alters the file’s size and length, or there could be an issue with the amount of information on your resume. Here are some steps that you can take to shorten your resume, depending on the issue:

Go to “My Resume” and select the document you wish to submit.

2.

Download it in an alternate file format from the previous one you opened.

3.

Click the “Print Preview” option to see how many estimated pages will print.

4.

Choose an alternate page size or sizing option, using the “Print Preview” option to review each change and approve the updated length.

Content is too long

Go to “My Resume” and select the document you wish to edit.

2.

Open the document and click the pencil at the top right of the section you want to edit.

3.

Use the down arrow to drag and drop items into the trashcan to delete them.

4.

Finish trimming your resume, save, and print the new document to check the length.

Why can’t I upload an existing document?

If you’re having trouble uploading a document, there could be an issue with the file format. Our builder can only upload or download the following file formats: .doc, .docx, .pdf, .rtf, or .txt.

If you still experience issues despite uploading one of the accepted file formats, please email us at customerservice@hloom.com. Include your account ID or associated email address and a summary of your issue.

The recruiter/hiring manager can’t open the email attachment I sent with my resume?

Download your document in a new file format (.pdf, .docx, .txt, or .rtf.).

2.

Attach the new file to an email draft and send it to yourself to test it.
